AFGH vs IND Dream11 Team | Afghanistan vs India | 2019 Cricket World Cup Match Prediction

By Savya Sachi

After being crushed down by the host in the previous encounter, Afghanistan would now lock horns against the most clinical team – India in the 28th fixture of ICC World Cup 2019. The clash is scheduled to be played at Rose Bowl, Southampton on Saturday.

Talking about Afghanistan, they have lost their all five encounters so far and this makes them sit at the bottom of the points table with nil points in their baggage. For sure, Afghanistan would be looking forward to breaking their losing streak against India but it is nearly impossible to demolish the no.2 team in the world.

India, on the other hand, has won all the matches with one washed due to rain. There are few injury concerns surrounding India, but we believe this won’t hamper their performance.

Toss Update:

India won the toss and elected to bat first.

India Changes:

Bhubaneswar misses out.

M Shami comes in place of him.

Afghanistan changes:

Dawlet Zardan Noor Ali Zardan missed out

Aftab Alam and H Zazai comes in for Afghanistan
